APC chieftains stranded in Government House
Chieftains of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa State were stranded in Government House, yesterday, as Governor Mohammed Umaru Bindow shunned all visitors coming for Sallah homage.
It was the first time in the history of the state a sitting governor would fail to receive visitors on Sallah homage in Government House.
Bindow left the state capital about 10 am for his hometown, Mubi, when party chieftains and other institutions were waiting in Government House to pay the Sallah homage, as is the tradition in the state.
When The Guardian visited Government House, it was deserted by officials, including security operatives, while the politicians were seen discussing the development in angry tones.
One of them from Gombi Council, Alhaji Musa Abubakar, said that the governor would soon give detailed account of his action to the electorate.
“We will all meet him at the polling units and we are going to use our votes to show him the way out of Government House. This has never happened in this state that a governor will refuse to see visitors for Sallah homage,” he stated.
Bindow, speaking earlier on Monday during the swearing-in ceremony of local council development area administrators, said he was not desperate to return to Government House for a second term.
